To this end, the grant finances the participation in practical training courses or short-term research stays in other laboratories. The Travel Grants programme is open to all Europeans and to non-Europeans working in Europe to go to institutes or courses worldwide. Non-Europeans working outside Europe can apply for stays in Europe. Travel grants are awarded for up to three months and encompass a flat-rate contribution which may cover the expenses for travel, lodging, and course fees.
